In all seriousness...

For the second year in a row, my parents have thrown a Christmas party for our family. We have food and drinks and a special guest. Yep, SC himself shows up to give the kiddos a gift. It goes without saying that it also means that there is a photo shoot of epic proportions that commences. I didn't really take any photos during this party - I was too busy helping with kiddos - but my aunt took about a million so I am going to share hers. Don't worry, I won't bore you with the massive amounts of photos.

I would like to introduce you to my siblings. We are so serious all of the time that it is really a wonder we ever have any fun.

As has been the tradition for several years now, my aunt takes family pictures for us every Christmas too, so we have combined that with the party to create Ultimate Family Photo Session *said in booming monster truck rally announcer's voice*.

You see, it starts out innocent enough, but after about two pictures, things start to go south. Behold the crazy that is my family.

Please note the kick to the head that Canon is receiving. His reaction alone is worth this shot.

We "big kids" are such role models for the bottom three. You're welcome guys.

See? Even Canon can't stay serious. What can he say? "I got it from my mama." {and daddy. The kid had no choice in the sense of humor department.}

The cousins bring us back to the sweetness by the end of the night, though. Just look at these angels loving on each other.

So to recap: Christmas party. Santa comes. Stuff gets real {ly weird}. The kids remind the "adults" how to act. We likely don't listen. The end.

Did you get all that?


  1. Haha, I love crazy family photo sessions :) Looks like a fun time!

    1. Thank you! We do have a lot of fun together. There isn't really a shortage of laughs, but you better have tough skin because we are the most sarcastic people around. :)
